My husband and I just made steel-cut oats for the first time a few weeks ago, and I liked them, but he loved them! This is great, because I'm trying to interest him in healthy foods and he's not a big oatmeal fan. I've been making them with fruit and molasses and so on, but I love the idea of an oat and mushroom risotto. I think I'll try it.
Steel Cut oats look different and taste different than Oatmeal They are much healthier and more filling also. Sometimes I make a couple of servings and spoon them up into lidded bowls. In morning I put almond milk, pecans & craisins on it and take to work for a different kind of breakfast at my desk. I eat it cold, very tasty & keeps me full til lunch.
Steel cuts are the cut oats before they are rolled into the flakes you are familiar with as quick or instant oat flakes in the pouches or canisters.

Just wondering-what the difference between steel cut and regular oatmeal. I eat the regular kind or the prepackaged flavored low sugar style as a quick breakfast when I don;t have time to cook.. thinking its healthier than a drive through breakfast sandwich.
Steel cuts are great when cooked in a crock pot over night.

I'm not a huge fan of steel cut oats, especially not for breakfast (just my preference, I know others love them!). So, I was challenged to find a way to get this into my diet. Found and tried a great recipe for steel cut oats risotto with mushrooms and squash - YUM!! It takes a little while to prepare, but makes a ton. Thought I would share. http://www.food.com/recipe/steel-cut-oat -risotto-with-butternut-squash-and-mus hrooms-194145
